best holiday adventure in the world

When you think of a holiday in the Turks and Caicos, you probably imagine lying on a beach sipping cocktails. While our beaches are certainly spectacular (and you’re going to want to schedule some time for the sun and the soft sand into your plans) that’s far from all these beautiful islands have to offer. If you’re looking for the adventure of a lifetime, we have everything you need right here- and the Big Blue Collective is ready to help you make your adrenaline-fueled dreams come true.

Adding some extra spark to the holidays

While some folks love to go on holiday purely to relax, other’s head out into the world looking for a sense of adventure. If it’s spectacular, offers a little challenge, and you can feel the thrill of your blood pumping when you’re done, it’s a true holiday! 

Even if you like a bit of both in your ideal vacation, the Turks and Caicos has it all, so get ready for a ride you’ll never forget.

  1. Underwater exploration

The Turks and Caicos has some of the best diving and snorkelling in the world, and that alone earns it a spot on the list of best adventure holiday destinations. With the world’s third-largest barrier reef lying just offshore, the opportunities for undersea exploration are manifold. Watch brightly coloured fish, rays, and even pygmy sharks flit around you as you experience one of the most thriving underwater landscapes in the world for yourself. If you happen to be here during our whale season, by the way, it’s often our dive teams that see the first hint of whale activity in the area, bringing something doubly special to the adventure!

New to diving? No need to worry! The Big Blue Collective is PADI affiliated, and we can help you learn or improve. You can even do the theory portion of your dive certification from home, so you’ll only be a few short dives away from certified when you arrive. As well as our outstanding seas, a diving holiday in the Turks and Caicos can take you tumbling down walls, diving blue holes like that on Grand Turk, and even exploring a wreck or two. It’s a complete dive experience offered by few other destinations.

The tempting turquoise water of the Turks and Caicos is just too good to pass up on, however. Even when you’re in the mood for something a little more leisurely, there’s a wealth of life and gorgeous vistas to explore snorkelling.

  1. Fly over the waves

No adventure holiday destination would be complete without a chance to truly get your adrenaline pumping, and the Turks and Caicos is no different. The unique geography of the islands makes this one of the best places in the world for the fascinating sport of kiteboarding. Skip and fly over the waves as the wind blows. There’s truly no other adventure sport like it! Although the relatively calm and flat waters of Long Bay offer you the perfect place to learn to kiteboard, the sea is your oyster thereafter. Skip down the back passages, let the predictable trade winds task your talents… the journey is up to you to shape. All we know is you’ll soon have a new favourite water sport!

  1. Scull the Islands’ secret waters

Want to get intimate with the secrets of the Turks and Caicos? Then it’s time to head to your kayak or a stand up paddleboard. One of the biggest drawcards for holidays in the Turks and Caicos is our remarkable eco-tours, with an exceptional wealth of pristine environment to explore. While the main islands of Grand Turk and Provo hold all the mod-cons you want to relax with after a hard day challenging body and mind, many of the smaller islands in the TCI are not even inhabited. With hidden bays and mangrove channels to explore, you’ll be able to experience wild backislands and untouched nature in all its majesty. Why not schedule a picnic on a deserted beach before hopping back into the water?

Stand up paddle boarding affords you an utterly unique view from the water level looking down, and is remarkably accessible for an adventure sport. Combined with the clarity of our seas, this gives you a chance to watch fish flit beneath you in a way found nowhere else in the world. Kayaking, on the other hand, let’s you experience a view startlingly close to that of many diving birds and aquatic animals, sitting low on the horizon of the water. Both will leave you with an exceptional eco-adventure you’ll never forget.  

Not active enough for you? A holiday in the Turks and Caicos offers you the chance to adventure on land, too! From a family cycle or hike through the outstandingly beautiful island scenery, to a full-blown eco-tour of the out islands and their untamed wilds, there’s non-stop adventure open to you in the TCI. Explore the ruins of the salt trade, and dive deep into TCI history. Want to head away from the crowd? We do offer charter boats, and many of our fleet can hold the gear you need for your adventure, too, so don’t hesitate to get in touch with us about your needs. Whether you’re all about luxury villas and days on the beach, or you can’t wait to get out there and explore one of the premium adventure holiday destinations in the world, we have the decades of experience to help you shape the Turks and Caicos holiday of your dreams, hassle-free.

With the Big Blue Collective’s unique concierge team on hand, you’ll soon be planning the action-adventure holiday of a lifetime. We look forward to meeting you soon!
